A bunch of good teams in North America this season: Torqued, CLG.A, Muffin, Denial, Mythic, French Cdns, Bushido, ex-Robin, Rise, Obey, Gx, Maskoff, Gale. The only thing missing in NA are Tempo Storm.BR, however they need to go through Open first.
2017-09-12 23:56

this season will have insane matches. I wanna see brax wrecking MDL
2017-09-13 00:32
this is fcking ridiculous to do with both Tempo rosters, being even worse with Tempo BR, these guys, even being kinda inconsistent they are sure on the level of Pro League teams and they dont even get invites to fcking Premier? There are some teams on that NA league list that take the game way way less serious than those guys, and some of them will probably even disband mid season. I sure wasn't expecting much coming from ESEA, but that shit is just sad
2017-09-13 01:17
Well, ESEA has an explicit rule on teams crossing over leagues (e.g., .br -> .us) and they've upheld the ruling. ESEA (not ESL) are pretty strict with their ruling, it's just instead of loopholes they do systematic changes to accomplish things.

There is a clear rule in our league rules for this: "If a team moves from one ESEA League region to another, they must restart in the Open division. ESEA does not accept applications under any circumstances for any division and all teams are required to start in an Open division. If a team is found attempting to circumvent this policy, they will be automatically demoted to that region's Open division. League staff will review these situations on a case by cases basis." ://
